  • What is the Pantone Color-of-the-Year?

    For 20 years, Pantone’s Color-of-the-Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in many industries, including fashion and home furnishings. To make their selection, the #PantoneColorInstitute looks at trends in fashion, art, travel and lifestyle.

    This year’s pick is Living Coral. It is a mellow orange with gold undertones. It’s a very flattering hue that pairs well with lots of colors.

    At #ClayCafe Studios, we have the perfect Living Coral, Mayco’s SC89 Cutie Pie Coral.

    We especially like it paired with Seabreeze, a bluish gray.

    Come by #ClayCaféStudios and we’ll show you our new favorite color!

  • 3 Date Night Pottery Ideas at #ClayCafeStudios

    Are you bored with the typical date night “dinner and a movie?” Whether you are on a first date or married and need a night out with your spouse, you are probably looking for something fun and creative to do. How about a #potterypainting date?

    Paint Something for Each Other

    Why not paint a mug or bowl for each other? You can personalize it with your pet name for each other or illustrate hobbies or things you like to do together. Later, use your pottery to drink your favorite coffee or eat your cereal and relive the great time you had together.

    Paint Something Together

    How about creating a one-of-a-kind platter together? A hand-painted gift is great for an occasion like your anniversary. It’s also fun to paint something quirky to document your fun date.

    Paint Gifts for the Holidays

    If you have a big holiday gift list, why not get started on your handmade presents? Paint a personalized ornament for every member of the family or something functional for everyone to share. Friends and family love personalized gifts and you can show off your painting talents by making some lovely keepsakes. Clay Cafe Studios staff can show you lots of easy techniques to create that special gift.

    Painting-your-own-pottery might be an unconventional date, but we guarantee you’ll have fun. Maybe you can even take a few #selfies to share your experience while making memorable #handmadeholidays together.

  • 3 Ways Clay Cafe Can Make Your Holiday Bright

    Yes, we know. It’s not even Halloween yet and we are talking about Christmas. Yikes! However, it’s never too early to get started on your #handmadeholidays at #ClayCaféStudios.

    Painting someone that one-of-a-kind gift that no one else has is definitely a labor of love. Here are 3 ways to create those special gifts

    Personalized Ornaments

    We have tons of ornaments just waiting to be personalized. Our ball ornaments have space for a name and the year. We have monogrammed ornaments from A to Z. There’s hundreds of ornaments, including #StarWars, sugar skulls and emojis.

    Handprint/Footprint Pottery

    Ball Ornaments are great for adding a child’s hand or footprint. Mugs, plates and platters also make good canvases. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles all love a collectible with a baby print. Clay Café staff is always there to help you express your creativity. We’ll even do the lettering for you.

    FUNctional Pottery

    Reindeer platters, gingerbread and snowman plates, and holiday-themed mugs will all put some pizzazz on your holiday table. Don’t forget a “Cookies for Santa” plate! Imagine your holiday table set with your hand-painted masterpieces.

    Our new lighted Christmas trees are a staff favorite. They come complete with a light kit and colorful lights. Make a new family heirloom by painting this tree together.

    Come in anytime and see our wonderful selection of holiday pottery. We are open every day (but Thanksgiving) until Christmas!
